Wednesday, May 17th– Graduation Band. All band students (except block 7 percussion and those involved with NJROTC) report to band room by 5:45PM. Look nice, Sunday best, but no color coordination. You can bring homework and devices if need be. We will warmup/tune/rehearse in the band room, then head to stadium. Bring your own water bottle, we will be out in the stadium from 6:30-about 8:30PM. Parents, please do NOT attend this event (I know, sort of a unique request) as the stadium is reserved for families of graduating students.
Friday, May 19th– nothing scheduled.
Monday, May 22nd–
6:00-6:45PM- Indoor marching rehearsal/pizza party. Incoming freshman and their families eat pizza with student staff.
6:45-7:30PM- ALL high school band members (varsity and JV) report to band room for short meetings (by instrument section). We will then play a couple pep-band tunes, and then read through the 2023 marching band show! We will also check out instruments to current 8th graders. We plan to check out instruments to current high school students during finals.
Tuesday, May 23rd–
4:30-7:30PM- Varsity marching rehearsal. All 2023 varsity marchers need to attend. This will be a great way to end the school year, lots of fun! Please bring instrument, but we do not plan on playing, just marching.
Students interested in auditioning for the 2023-24 jazz ensemble and you’re not currently enrolled in a jazz class, please see Mr. Reed to set up an audition sometime this week after school.
That’s it for now, we can really see the light at the end of the tunnel!
